Soon you’ll be able to enjoy Skylanders without being horrifically ripped off!

skylanders-academy

Skylanders is one of those Toys-to-Life games that require you to purchase a bunch of expensive toys in order to unlock content in the game you already paid full price for.  I wrote IGN’s wiki guide for two games in the series and calculated that you need to spend a minimum of $254.89 in order to experience everything in Skylanders: Swap Force. Skylanders: SuperChargers has the potential to cost you significantly more, depending on just how much of the game’s content you want to access.  A game, I must remind you, that costs $75 to start.

It’s horse poop.

But equine droppings aside, how’s the actual game?
